Since the dawn of Twitter and Facebook there has been a high level of importance set on the number of followers or likes a person or business has. When you have an enormous number of people following you it makes you appear more credible, well known, and cooler than another person or business who doesn’t. But, if you are not yet well know, credible, and cool then you might decide to purchase fake followers or likes so that you appear to be. The irony that comes with the purchasing of this fake following is priceless for many reasons.
1. It is easy to spot.
2. It takes time to build a quality following.
3. Fake followers look unsurprisingly fake.
4. Your credibility will be tarnished.
5. You gain absolutely NOTHING!
The purpose of being on a social network is to be……social and build relationship capital.
